Joe Rogan is a man of strong opinion. One could say the veteran color commentator is a no-nonsense man. He often calls out what he feels isn’t right. In a similar instance, Rogan once called out 4-time NBA champion LeBron James. The famous podcast host was of the belief that James wasn’t using the right equipment for his recovery.

Joe Rogan was quick to mention that James was using the wrong frozen chamber. The color commentator replied to the post and wrote, “@BleacherReport @KingJames @uninterrupted he’s using the wrong kind. His head isn’t immersed. That’s old tech @Cryohealthcare is the future” 

However, this is not the first time Joe Rogan has called out LeBron James. Previously the podcast host called out the Lakers star for a hair mishap the latter suffered.

Back in 2019, during a game with the Utah Jazz, LeBron James suffered through a hair mishap. UFC color commentator Joe Rogan reacted to the same on his podcast.

Because of the mishap, Rogan was of the belief that James should shave his head. Speaking about it, Rogan said, “The guy is a f*****g billionaire. He’s a god amongst men. He’s a giant super athlete with a really well-shaped head.” 

The podcast host also felt that James had something glued to his head that was not his hair. Rogan further added, “What the f**k man? Shave your goddamn head. He’s got some nonsense glued on his head that’s like not his hair.”

However, Rogan has also been appreciative of LeBron James. The color commentator felt that if the Lakers star had to compete in MMA, it wouldn’t be good for others. “A guy like that, if he was fighting, everybody would be f****d,” concluded Rogan in an episode of his podcast.
